Additional details

Sail Date: Oct 2012
Cabin: Standard Inside

We traveled with a group of friends.We thoroughly enjoyed this ship; mainly because of The Queens Room...a large ballroom with a 7 piece band every night(one night "big band night" there were 15 musicians). Dancing with my wife & friends with a big band is what we really enjoyed.The Queens Room was the best dance venue we have seen in our 11 cruises.

We thought the Brittannia restaurant food was excellent; the buffet on the top deck (Lido?) was good.

Our inside cabin had enough room,modern,clean & quiet.Public areas were spotlessly clean & elegant. Casino was small but it doesn't concern us.Theatre was large & the entertainment was good, with excellent dancers & a very good Irish comedian.There was always some entertainment in different parts of the ship, string quartet,harpist,jazz singer or pianist etc.etc.Plenty of variety.

Port Reviews

Katakolon (Olympia)

Olympia we had seen before, so we spent the day at the Greek seaside village of the port Katokolon. We had a delicious meal at a taverna & bought some inexpensive jewellery nearby.

Mykonos

Mykonos was busy,beautiful harbour.We walked with our friends & had lunch at a sea-front taverna.

Santorini

Santorini we took the cable car to the top, walked around with our friends bought some lovely Greek jewellery & had lunch at a cliffside taverna overlooking our ship.
